YPI CREW YACHT JOBS – 12th October 2017

While the end of the Monaco Yacht Show may signal the end of the summer yachting season, there are still yacht crew jobs available for those in search of work.

YPI CREW is the leading recruiter for superyacht jobs, placing crew on vessels all over the world. While some yachts may be leaving the Mediterranean for warmer climates, there are still jobs on offer all over the world.

In this video, Laurence Lewis, the Director of YPI CREW, dispels the myth that the recruitment season is over. There are no seasons when it comes to superyacht recruitment.

YPI CREW matches the best yacht crew with the best superyacht jobs, on vessels in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, and in other parts of the world. Our experienced recruiters understand the skills required to be successful in a career at sea. We work closely with yacht Captains and Owners to find candidates that best fit the needs of a particular yacht.
